|I'm Too Sexy For My Furrrr...|
He started the way most of us started, on a bicycle.
This worked... for awhile. He kept growing and things had to change up to the next step.
A dog carrier.
Sitting on the bike while I had it running.
Another Giant Dog Bed!
This worked for awhile... and after getting him used to the feel and sound, I took a little ride with him on the Deluxe. That did not work out so well. Sorry no pics, I can't ride and take pics at the same time, but we made it around the corner. The problem was he didn't want to sit still. The carrier was a good hold for him, but Mommy's balance with him moving about all the time, was, well... not so good. We went home and placed the two wheels in the "out" category of my and Murray's riding days. As much as he could handle it... I couldn't.
Instead I went home and figured out a rig for the Ural. Now sold, the sidecar made it comfy for both him as a rider and me as a captain on my bike. He really discovered himself as a rider in the comfy over sized dog bed the Ural provided and his happiness showed. He received attention, and as a dog, who could ask for more! Securely in, he was riding in first class.

After a hard decision I sold the Ural. But then still wanting a three wheeled motorcycle I bought the Street Glide Trike. We went back into using the front pack (made for dogs) and went out on it for a little ride. He molded perfectly into his new ego...Trike Dog. Instantly, we were both comfy and since that day we have gone many places, albeit just around town, but he and I enjoy our Trike Time together. He now sits within the front pack on the tank. He wears his goggles, he doesn't like them, but like a good biker dog, he complies.
Here's a pic of us at Cook's Corners, Orange County, CA

He met up with Rusty his dog buddy. He's a rider too.
|Murray found out this wasn't a Dog Wash but a Hog Wash instead.|
|You trying to tell me I'm not a bad ass?!!!|
Woofing at life!
Anyway, that's a bit of Murray Man's beginnings.
